Orson Welles directed and starred in this film version of his own novel. Powerful financier Mr Arkadin (Welles) claims to be suffering from amnesia, and hires smuggler Guy van Stratten (Michael Redgrave) to research his past. Arkadin has an ulterior motive, however: to uncover and eradicate his former enemies, so that his daughter (Paola Mori) remains unaware of the ruthlessness with which he has secured his wealth.
